The album was awarded 3½ stars in an Allmusic review by Steve Huey who states "Gravy Train is a fine, if not quite exceptional record from Lou Donaldson's initial soul-jazz phase of the early '60s… Donaldson's playing is pleasant, and the rest of the supporting group maintains a steady groove throughout".
